One Direction is headed to a movie theater near you.
Sony Pictures says it's making a 3-D film about the boy band, due out next year on Labor Day weekend, The Associated Press reports.
"Super Size Me" filmmaker Morgan Spurlock will direct the movie.
The film will give fans an all-access, behind-the- scenes look at the group and its five members: Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson.
The London-based band was discovered by Simon Cowell on the U.K.'s "The X Factor" in 2010. They have sold more than 13 million records worldwide and are known for hits including "What Makes You Beautiful," "One Thing" and "Live While We're Young."
David Petraeus may no longer be the head of the CIA after resigning last week due to an extramarital affair. But his virtual alter ego is doing just fine at the Pentagon, E! News reports.
The retired general is moving up in the ranks as he appears as the secretary of defense in several cinematics for "Call of Duty: Black Ops II," the latest installment in Activision and Treyarch's blockbuster first-person shooter franchise, which hit stores today.
Per gaming website Kotaku, Petraeus was not involved in the making of the video game, but the first sequence finds a CGI version of the all-American hero aboard an aircraft carrier named the USS Barack Obama, as he and the ship's admiral await the arrival of a terrorist prisoner.
"The last order to DEFCON 3 was given by Secretary Rumsfeld almost 25 years ago," muses the former CIA chief, actually the voice of an actor and political impressionst.
The story, written by David S. Goyer ("The Dark Knight" trilogy), is set in the year 2025 and fuses futuristic technology with international events and various political and military figures going all the way back to the '80s.
In another scene, the CGI Petraeus briefs President Bosworth, a female commander in chief who bears a striking resemblance to Hillary Clinton, on board Marine One before it's shot down over a war-ravaged L.A. Luckily, he and his boss survive, according to an audio message, which kicks off the next mission.
One person who's MIA, however, is Paula Broadwell, the woman with whom Petraeus had the affair. Of course, that's because "Black Ops II's" performance-capture visuals were filmed well before news of the sex scandal first broke, let alone the uproar over the September consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya.
While reporting on the extramarital affair of David Petraeus that led to his resignation as head of the CIA, Denver's ABC affiliate put up a graphic of what it believed to be the cover of the book written by his biographer/mistress, Paula Broadwell, E! News reports.
Unfortunately, as Americablog initially noticed, the station inadvertently used a Photoshopped image of the cover, so that instead of the correct title, "All In," the fake title "All Up In My [vulgarity]" was shown instead.
Needless to say, 7News in Denver issued a statement regarding the mistake made during Monday's broadcast and to explain exactly what went, er, down.
"It was a regrettable and an embarrassing error," the station's news director, Jeff Harris, said. "We are mortified this appeared during our 5 p.m. news broadcast. The editor pulled the image of the book cover from the Internet without realizing it had been doctored. We sincerely regret the error and have corrected the story to avoid any recurrence of its broadcast. We are following up internally as well to avoid a repeat of this inexcusable oversight."
All the YouTube clicks have paid off for "Gangnam Style" rapper, Psy, People reports.
He became an overnight sensation in the United States, and now the Korea-bred artist, also known as Park Jae-Sang, is being honored at the American Music Awards on Sunday.
Psy will follow in the footsteps of DeStorm, Christina Grimmie and Karmin, to become this year's new media honoree for his cyber success.
He will receive a trophy for his hit single -- which has racked up more than 28 million video clicks -- during the Coca-Cola Red Carpet LIVE! at the 2012 AMAs pre-show. Psy will also perform his catchy tune during the show itself.
The pre-show will stream live on YouTube and other partner sites starting at 5 p.m. The 40th annual American Music Awards airs Sunday at 8 p.m. on ABC.
With impressive performances from Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook" may already be an Oscar contender before it even hits theaters.
For Pat (played by Cooper), a former teacher who has just been released from a mental hospital, things get interesting when he gets involved with Tiffany (played by Lawrence), a neighborhood girl with problems of her own.
But with Danny (Chris Tucker) leading the way, Tiffany and Pat unwind as they learn to dance to Stevie Wonder's "Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing."
The film has been earning praise since it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
"They're amazing together, with Lawrence showing incredible range and comic timing in her award-worthy performance," People's movie critic Alynda Wheat wrote at the time.
"Silver Linings Playbook" opens in theaters Wednesday, Nov. 21.
Tamera Mowry-Housley delivered a son, Aden John Tanner Housley, on Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, People reports.
This is the first child for the "Tia & Tamera" star, 34, and her husband, FOX News correspondent Adam Housley.
Arriving two weeks after his due date of Oct. 30, Aden was born at 9:45 p.m., weighing in at 9 pounds, 5 ounces and is 21.5 inches long.
"Adam and I feel very blessed to finally be holding our son," the new mom says.
"He is a beautiful miracle, and our hearts are overflowing with love. Thank you to everyone for your love and support. It means so much to our family."
She and Housley, 40, wed in May 2011 in Napa Valley.
